Plaxico Burress -- Punished in Prison

5/3/2010 4:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0503_plaxico_buress_BN_Getty_01Former New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress caught a serious punishment during his stint behind bars -- dude lost his recreational time privileges for one month after lying to a guard.

According to the New York Post, Plaxico was smacked with a one-month ban from recreational time at the Oneida Correctional Facility back in November after he allegedly told a guard that he had secured permission to make a phone call ... when in fact, he had not.

Aside from the rec. time ban, Plaxico -- who's doing a two-year term for that whole "I shot myself in the leg" thing -- was also grounded from phone privileges for one week as well.

Plax is scheduled to be released in the Spring of 2011.

You see the results you get when you make stupid a#$ mistakes such as plaxico did. I just don't get it. You are a superstar football player, making millions of dollars, and probably have everything you ever wanted in life. no you still want to have that so call thug mentality and look where it sent you. Rubbing sholders with BIG BUBBA. I have no pitty. I hope some young kid look at this and learn that there is always consequences for your actions. Make the right one!!!!

Why is his prison sentence so long? To accidently shoot yourself and get 2 years in prison seems a bit harsh. Isn't the gimp leg punishment enough?

Lying to a gaurd, is he crazy? What is it going to take for this guy to learn his lesson? He was so talented too.
